Great Heffa!!
A - dark brown, nice foamy head
S - "yeasty", breadlike, very pleasant aroma
T - Awesome! You can tell the German influence in the aftertaste, but is definitely not overpowering. Very pleasant
M - light carbonation, not heavy, but a creamy texture
O - one of the better Heffas I've tried. Great taste, no alcohol aftertaste. You've gotta try one!

On tap at Cervecería San Julián, a bar with a nice and small selection of draft beers and good bottled ones, 3.50€ the 0.5L glass.
Typical appearance orange-ish hue with a head that crownes the glass nicely. Simple (nota in a bad way) smell, yeasty. Good refreshing taste, great for summers and spring, the mouthfeel is a little bit too carbonated for my taste, but that is not a great problem.
The mouthfeel is awesome, I have to admit it, after drinkin 3L last Saturday without problem.
A quite solid Hefe, it is pretty available here so why not drink it?

Served chilled in a pilsner glass

A - pours a hazy dark yellow with lots of sediment. An aggressive pour leads to minimal head

S - not much here, hints of banana and clove, but really not much aroma. Maybe more will come out as it warms....

T - kind of light on the taste, sweet, malt, banana, wheat, what is there is nice, but again, maybe more will come out when it warms a bit.

M - smooth, no hint of alcohol, "crisp"

O - not bad, i just wish there was more here. Maybe I've become accustomed to the "doubles" and "imperials" i've been drinking lately, but I'm trying to keep the style in perspective. Nothing bad to say, I was just thinking there would be stronger attributes to this one.

Poured into a Weizen-glass, the cloudy light golden beer develops a great three finger white head. It dissipates fast and leaves no lacing.
The smell is of banana, tart, yeast and citrus.
Tasting the beer you will experience the refreshing feel of fruity banana, citrus and yeast. The tart finish leaves a great mouthfeel.
A very refreshing Weizen!
